Tonight we’ll have an #IOTW session about weather. Exicted for new idioms? Stay tuned, fellas!
1. Chase rainbows: Someone who tries to do something that they will never achieve.
My friends told me to quit chasing rainbows when I started my new business.
2. In a fog: confused, dazed or not aware.
She was in a fog for several days after the accident.
3. Shoot the breeze: to have a relaxed conversation without any purpose.
It’s always a pleasure to shoot the breeze with Amy. We’re connected in many ways.
4. Face like thunder: very angry or upset about something.
I don’t know what was happening, I just saw Mr. Will was leaving the room with his face like thunder.
5. Fair-weather friend: someone who is only your friend during good times but disappears when things become difficult.
I wish I knew that she was a fair-weather friend. She left me as soon as I lost my job.
6. Storm in a teacup: someone who makes a small problem larger than it really is.
My sisters are always arguing about something, it’s just a storm in a teacup
7. Snowed under: having to much to do that you are having trouble doing it all.
I’d love to help you, but I’m completely snowed under at the moment.
8. Take a rain check: to politely refuse an offer, with the implication that one may accept it at a later date.
Thank you for your dinner invitation. Mind if I take a rain check to that?
That’s all I can share for tonight, fellas. I hope it’s been useful for you.
